Abstract/Summary A method of assessing the blastability of a rock mass is presented which makes use of five, readily available, simple parameters. These are the rock mass description, joint plane spacing, joint plane orientation, specific gravity influence and hardness. For a particular rock mass a value is assigned to each parameter and the blastability Index is calculated from these values. Application of the Index in blast planning and computer modelling is discussed.
